There’s nothing better than cooling off with a nice refreshing (adult) beverage on a hot summer day. For many, those drinks are typically a sweet cocktail or a cold beer. However, some of us like our go-to cocktails, like say…I dunno…a dirty martini! And frankly – we want those on hot summer days, too!

So to solve this ever present issue (yes, it’s a legit problem!) of wanting to have a dirty martini in the afternoon without judgment, we decided to popsicle them!

That makes them socially acceptable on a Tuesday at 1pm, right? (nod in agreement…)

With a well placed swizzle stick as a handle, and 3 olives skewered and embedded in the martini-pop, you’re in for the classiest of summer treats.

I mean…do you not feel refreshed just LOOKING at those boozy pops!?

This recipe is so easy, you can make a whole batch to help you survive the whole summer, or you know, just the weekend. Whatever, we don’t judge here.

Cheers!

Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2oz vodka
  • 1 tbsp dry vermouth
  • 2 tbsp olive brine
  • 12 olives (we used pimento stuffed)

Equipment

  • Popsicle Tray
  • 4 swizzle sticks (tall enough to be a handle!)

Method

  • Skewer up all your swizzle sticks with 3 olives each.
  • Place the swizzle sticks with olives on an angle into the 4 popsicle molds.
  • In a shaker, add your vodka, dry vermouth & olive brine, cover and shake!
  • Pour out the martini from the shaker into the popsicle molds, evenly dividing into the 4 spots.
  • The martini mix will only fill up the mold about 1/3 of the way, so pour water in to fill it up (and help it freeze!)
  • Freeze overnight, and when ready to enjoy - gently tug on the swizzle stick to remove the pop, and enjoy!
